The lights are on
Shadow of Mordor is a dark tale that has the former ranger Talion seeking revenge...but that doesn't mean every second of the story needs to have brooding. It looks like the team at Monolith is lightening the mood a bit with the introduction of Ratbag, a sniveling orc who wants to be warchief.
In the video below, we get a taste for how Talion and Ratbag interact. The orc seems to put his own best interests first, so it will be interesting to see how long Talion (and players) are willing to put up with him.

I desperately hope this game will be good, if not great. It's been too long since I've been excited for a game.
